I have a condition (like)MS, Primary Progressive. But EXTENSIVE TESTING!!! by Neurologists does not conclusively support diagnosis of MS. This began about six years ago (When I was 58) with stumbling, and has been the same for the past 3 years, with no additional symptoms. I am 64 now.
I can't lift my left leg, (as in marching). This creates great difficulty walking, as with a somewhat straight leg, footdrag, imbalance, fatigue, and has really slowed down my activities, which to me has been devastating. I was employed in the performing arts, and was also a teacher in the school system.
The downside of this is doctors have said "come back if things get worse" .I finanally realized after almost 6 years how negative and non productive this advice is, and realized I had to be proactive if any progress was to be seen in my health.
About 7 yers ago, a freak accident by a student caused a horizontal laceration just above my left heel. ((No stitches or x-rays were taken by attending physician). All doctors have said it is totally unrelated to my symptoms.
Does anyone have any familiarity with these symptoms? Any advice which could bring more effective mobility?
